I bought lanterns for my father who passed away 5 years ago, as well as my father-in-law who passed away 9 years ago which would be placed on the lake around sunset. It was a beautiful site and gorgeous day for it. We were there...More

We've visited the Morton Arboretum several times and it all began when my son was young. The Children's Garden has several places where kids can climb and wander (it spans 4 acres). It is really picturesque! For as many times as we have gone there...More

I have been going to the Morton Arboretum for the last 12 years and right now is my by far most favorite event going on. Larger than life trolls are intermingled within the trees and provide so much great fantasy!

When you want to enjoy the beauty of nature go to the Morton Arboretum. You can park the car and walk. You can also enjoy driving in your car slowly to enjoy the landscape.Our favorite time is when the leaves change color in September
